Fantastic service!

We stopped for a quick drink (bottle of Prosecco) and were greeted with very welcoming service. Free pizza and nuts and charming waiter. The most friendly bar we visited all week.

Just off the main drag, it's a relaxing change after the fine dining to be had in the neighbourhood. It' s great fun when its raining to watch everyone running while you are under your canopy. The street is barely wide enough to have a table as well as the cars that go past, which only adds to the hilarity.... More

Nice atmosphere but a little let down by being served warm food. The chief does not have a hot plate. So when the food is ready it sits there until the waiters get it.

The food was absolutely amazing. We were a loud group of 7, so there was a confusing banter of chat and menu discussion, but the waiter was sooooooo patient with all of the trivial requests that each of us had. Well worth looking for the restaurant..... A TOTAL 'MUST GO'...::))
